Opioid Use Disorder MAT

Opioid Use Disorder MAT

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is a therapeutic approach for opioid use disorder (OUD), a severe mental health condition marked by compulsive drug use despite the associated negative consequences and health risks. MAT combines behavioral therapy and medication to assist individuals in overcoming opioid dependence and mitigating the risks of overdose and other health issues. The primary objective of MAT is to offer a secure and effective method for managing opioid cravings, allowing individuals to reconstruct their lives and achieve lasting recovery.

Various forms of MAT exist, but the most common method involves using medications like methadone, buprenorphine, or naltrexone to control withdrawal symptoms and lower the likelihood of relapse. The medications employed in MAT are regulated controlled substances.

MAT's use in treating opioid use disorder is evidence-based and proven effective in helping individuals attain and maintain recovery. However, it is crucial to recognize that MAT is not a universal solution; the optimal treatment plan will depend on the individual's specific needs and circumstances.

It is recommended that those seeking treatment for opioid use disorder consult with a mental health professional experienced in addressing this condition. This professional can help guide them toward the most appropriate course of action for their situation.

Additionally, you should also be confident that you can support your clients and that the client has problems that you can help them cope with. Also, you can avoid any ethical difficult situations about charging a client for a session in which you choose not to proceed based on fit.

We've found that people are more likely to proceed with therapy after a free consultation, as it lowers the barrier to starting the process.
